a budget plan by a 2:1 margin. they plan very similar to that ryan proposal. yet when asked which party they trusted more on budget issues voters trusted the democrats by 35%. it is a bigger margin than the margin of victory for president obama in november. the republicans 30%. that is on trust, that is as they say in the trade a big deal. the national republican committee today issued a scathing self critique of the republican party recent failures focus groups describe republicans as narrowminded, out of touch. $1.2 billion last year in the last presidential election alone and the future of the g.o.p. understanding you can't get it done just with money. as a result, the republican national committee has decided to pour resources into its ground game targeting youth and women and hispanics and other minorities while focusing on making the party's message more inclusive and open to different views. i don't know what they paid for the study, but that is kind of vague, don't you think? he had this to say to me last year. >> we can have all the voter contact in the world, but if it is not

fan of these guys either. i want to talk to you about the democratic party and the president. president obama met with senate democrats today. according to politico, i found this disturbing, he warned them social insurance programs including social security and medicare would need to be cut in some way in order to keep them going. now, we've discussed this before. the president also said republicans would have to agree for more revenue before he would agree to changing the programs. what do you think of that particular bargain sir? do social security programs need to be cut? >> the answer is they don't. social security has almost $2 trillion in the bank. it is the largest government fund in the entire world. that's what they've got sitting in the bank and that's what the rest of the government and the american people owe that fund. under current law, social security can pay out out 100% of its benefits for the next 25 years which is probably longer than i'm going to meed it. after that point 85% to 95% of its benefits, a minor tweak like for instance raising the cap on who ha

. at the last few gatherings of c- pac, the focus was on taking back the white house from president obama. but with last november's defeat of mitt romney, this key bloc of conservative enthusiasts has set its sights on a new goal: reshaping and reenergizing the republican party. romney offered his own assessment today, in his first public address since his concession speech on election night. >> each of us in our own way is going to have to step up and meet our responsibilities. i'm sorry i won't be your president, but i will be your co-worker and i'll work shoulder-to-shoulder alongside you. ( applause ) >> reporter: romney may be stepping away from the stage, but his running mate wisconsin congressman paul ryan is back in the thick of fiscal fights on capitol hill. today, he addressed the deficit. >> by living beyond our means, government is sending us a message. it is saying, if you plan ahead, if you make sacrifices for your kids, if you save, you're a sucker. it is brazenly stealing from our children and our young adults and it has to stop. >> reporter: amid the stickers, tchotchkes

with the other parties there. obama is coming into a situation where there is not a huge amount that can really get done with a new government because they're still sorting themselves out and getting in a position. is much weakened from where he was before the election. he has fewer members of his own party and the parliament is in a situation where it is not entirely clear what the way forward is going to be. that is what obama is coming into, as he goes into these meetings. , with politico. thanks for your time this morning. guest: thank you. host: president obama and the prime minister will give you -- will be giving a joint press conference. look for coverage on c-span.org. minister ofrael defense from 2007 until this week wrote a piece in today's wall street journal. host: back to our discussion here for the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. we are getting your thoughts this morning. ohio, iraq veteran. caller: good morning. host: what are your thoughts? caller: i am here. host: we're listening. you're on the air. ander: i was there in 2005 from 2006-2007. host: we're listening. --ler: it
a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of the war on terror. i am as well. i understand a guy who has been been through wraar. i have been to iraq, i've been to afghanistan. my father was killed in vietnam. i get the concept of standing up for the military, protecting our country. john mccain, if you want to protect the country, how about this, how about sticking with your pledge to build the damn fence. then we will talk! are you here? don't be afraid to get a little rowdy. make some noise. there we go! >> that is what we need. >> by the way, i'm done. >> come on back, rusty. i do want to move to that dinner that you referred to and this whole debate about the spending and the budget and the like. let's see if we can roll the clip that is president obama -- i wish it was senator obama. >> are you referring to michelle four years from now? >> be careful what you say. let's roll the clip on president obama. >> i think what is important to recognize is that
trillion in debt? partisanship.

where we talk about 85 billion, president obama said he was willing to deal with democrats in his own party who did not want to touch entitlements, he said he would be willing to talk to people in his party that did not think that medicare should be touched. why smart with nonstarter -- why start with nonstarters? maybe, to rick a point, this is a starting gate, they have come out with plans 24 hours apart, different plans, but, i've seen how this goes. maybe this is an attempt to find a meeting in the middle, i guess, scott martin, where is that middle? >> that was my question to you, where is that middle? i have to bet rick a sugary style new york drink here. >> he is fit as a fiddle. >> you have not corrupted him yet, the president loves murray plan, i think there is no question, with regard to the attack on medicare, and medicaid, you have to go the number is to big 59%, because those are the big ones, you are not going to make progress if you don't touch the big elephants in the room. >> you do have to go after the big ones, but there are two big ones, entitlements but what is th

inside stuff. amy kellogg, thank you very much. president obama back on capitol hill for the third straight day as house and senate leaders battle over rival budget plans. the president has now met with members from parties of both chambers. and mitch mcconnell said it was a quote, great meeting, but senator mcconnell added, we'll see where we go from here. the city that gave us the model t, supplied the allies during two world wars and reinvented soul music is now the biggest city in american history to lose control of its own finances. michigan today appointing an emergency manager to oversee the troubled city of detroit. we knew this could be coming, people had hoped it would get worked out, it hasn't. governor rick snyder tapped bankruptcy expert kevyn orr, he helps with chrysler, but the detroit is a different thing altogether. a budget deficit more than 320 million right now and what that's translating as is things like this. the fire department stretched so thin it's proposed just letting vacant buildings burn if they catch fire. the city cannot afford to keep all of its str
figure and a serious policy figure in the republican party, but the governor's criticism about the budget is spot on. its formulations are not based in reality. obama care has been validated by the court, it was validated in the last election, it is the law of the land. i think that it is important for republicans to communicate clearly to the country about the costs and future of the interest payments on out of control spending, that's an absolute threat to our future prosperity. we're going to have to deal with that as a country. when you put forward the plans and proposals, particularly when you're the minority party, particularly when you're out of power, it ought to be a document that's grounded in reality, in truth telling to the american people. >> reality and truth telling, endangered species in some circles. steve schmidt and howard dean, thank you both for joining me. >> you bet. >>> republican senator rob portman surprised his party this morning with news that he now supports same sex marriage. the reversal comes after his son came out to him. coming up, we look at his reasons
speakers and i found myself in agreement with you, and that is the republican party needs to get tougher. ill h'll be honest, i was surprised when john boehner said he trusted obama. he has been duplicitous and trying to get boehner fired. why would he say he trusts him? >> there are a lot of things we believe in and shouldn't give up on and some of the things i was talking about, i think, attracts people from both the left and right and that's supporting your right to trial by jury, your right to be innocent until proven guilty, these are such time-honored concepts that i think it allows the republican party to get bigger, but our young people want us to stand for something, really stand on principle and i think that's why the filibuster probably helped me to gain enough votes to win in the poll. >> sean: do you identify yourself as more a libertarian conservative? people ask me, i'm a registered conservative in new york, i consider myself a reagan conservative. how do you -- is libertarian fair or-- do you embrace it, what? >> it depends what people mean by it. i use the term constitut
to quote, unquote, evolve and party of stoogy old white men-- >> i know you want to turn this into a republican issue. when obama does it at one point he has a real position, he's for it. >> sure. >> sean: then he's running for president, polls don't show he's in agreement with the american people and then he's against it and gets reelected and now i can be for it again. now what? that is what everything everybody i know, dennis praguer, hates about politicians. god bless her, i like hillary clinton in some ways, i've got to tell you something, that's so phony, i want to read this prompter and tell you. it didn't seem sincere. >> we've got to be clear, it's a flip-flop as they say in the case of the president because he knew it was not popular when he was running in 2008 and he knows it's popular now and that's fine and maybe he sincerely changed his mind, but i believe originally he was for same-sex marriage. the thing is that what you just said is a very important point and i'd like to address it about stoogy old republicans or men or/and women. >> sean: and the republi

, there is not a lot of optimism among the three parties, the u.s., israel and the palestinians, that peace negotiators will be back at the table any time soon. >> alex, there have been reports and only reports of chemical weapons in syria. president obama has said that that is his red line. is this conflict overshadowing the visit? >> reporter: we have to be very careful when we talk about chemical weapons. when the white house talks about chemical weapons and red lines, what we believe them to mean are the very potent chemical weapons we know to be in their arsenal, vx, mustard and sarin gas. no indication those have been used and no confirmation that chemical weapons were actually used in these attacks yesterday by allegedly by the rebels and the regime. the white house has said there's no evidence. but despite that, this obviously raises the fears of their use of them falling into the wrong hands, so while the trip won't be overshadowed, it certainly highlights the need to discuss this while here in israel. >> all right. alex marquardt in jerusalem, the world will be watching. thank you for that. >
as a chance to outline their principles and drawing a distinction between president obama, who has yet to release its budget, and their party. they say they have put their principles on paper and this is the starting point for their negotiating process. in all likelihood, even republicans acknowledged their budget has little chance of passing in the senate. senate democrats would admit that their budget has little chance of passing in the house. what house republicans are saying is at least we put our budget down on paper. and they say the president probably and should have done the same a couple months ago. yearsbeen more than 90 since the president's budget has trailed house budgets. host: was there any talk about it was related to the affordable care act and changing medicare and things like that? guest: we saw yesterday that paul ryan was pressed on this issue. it was a tricky moment for him in the press conference. he had to defend including some of the tax increases that have gone into it effect in recent years and explain how he would also get rid of the president's health care
is what it is called. part of a grand bargain. president obama has been pursuing this grand bargain. the idea of replacing the sequester. fair or not, it seems like the leaders of your party are sort of putting all these discussions on a binary track. where the decision will be either we stick with the sequester or we have the grand bargain. i guess i'm curious from your perspective, if those are your two choices, which would you prefer? >> they're not my two choices and i just came from the committee meeting. i will be returning to the budget committee meeting. we are working on a may know budget which will protect the american people which we'll do away with a lot of the loopholes which will be a real contrast to congressman ryan's disastrous budget which will make devastating cuts for working families, low-income families, while lowering taxes for the wealthiest people at a time which wl the rich are doing phenomenally well. one out of four major corporations is paying nothing in taxes. my hope is that we can in fact develop a strong budget which is based on revenue and judicious
